Easy access to 2 entrances to 2 sites Pleasantly surprised to have had access to the Colosseum arena and the Aula Isiaca hall at the Palatium. On the other hand, I recommend that you make your reservation with a "gmail" email address, because with my "Wanadoo.fr" address I didn't receive the 2 tickets. I had to urgently contact Headout via Chat so that they could send me the tickets to a gmail address, which I received within 24 hours. Lionel

Exciting to be in such a historic place. Was very, very crowded on a Monday morning! We were able to get some good photos and enjoyed having skip-the-line tickets.

The reservation went well, although waiting three days before the visit to receive the voucher did not please me. Anyway it arrived correctly and with the time I had requested. The visit to the monuments went very well, being able to skip the endless queues is a plus.

We did not expect that we could enter the Colosseum only at 11:30h while the start time was 9:00h. Because we had booked another activity at 12:00h, we could not use the ticket. For our part, it would be helpful to publish the schedule so that you can take it into account. We would not have planned two activities in a row.

Super simple and reliable to book in advance. Adds interest to the typical visit by incorporating the Mamertine prison.

The glory of the Colosseum

The Colosseum is one of Italy’s most popular destinations. Believed to have been constructed as a gift from the ancient emperors to the Roman people, this grand outdoor amphitheater once served as an epicenter for entertainment, hosting various public spectacles and games. A stage for gladiator fights, often including animals, the Colosseum has quite the bloody past. Step back in time, marvel at the impressive architecture, and walk the floor of the greatest arena known to mankind.

Marvel at the Roman Forum & Palatine Hill

Your Colosseum ticket also includes entry to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Head to the Roman Forum and travel back in time as you walk along the same paths as the ancient Romans did. You’ll get a chance to witness popular sites including the Temple of Antoninus Pius, Temple of Castor and Pollux, Temple of Saturn, Arch of Septimius Severus, and much more.

Palatine Hill offers one of the best views of the city. Here, the lush Farnese Gardens offer a peaceful escape from the crowds. Relax amidst manicured terraces, statues, and panoramic views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum. Once considered the most desirable neighborhood in Rome, Palatine Hill lives on as an extensive archaeological site and was the chosen spot for Emperors to build their homes. To enhance your experience, you can step into the walls of the Mamertine Prison with a ticket upgrade, and learn about the foes of Rome once imprisoned here.
